Galaxy S9 and S9+ pick up Samsung One UI in Kenya, Note 8 gets Jan 2019 security patch

Samsung started rolling out Android 9 Pie-based One UI to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on the eve of Christmas day, but this rollout was limited to those who took part in the beta program.

Three weeks later, users of the S9 and S9+ in Kenya can now download and install Samsung One UI based on Android Pie on their devices. The update comes on the back of the Galaxy Note 9 receiving the same update in the country.

If you have the S9 with you, the One UI update is arriving as version G960FXXU2CSA2 while those using the S9+ should watch out for an update with version G965FXXU2CSA2. Besides installing Pie, you also get this month’s Android security patch.

Speaking of which, the January 2019 security patch is also rolling out to the Galaxy Note 8. However, this update, which has version N950FXXS5CSA1, is still based on Android 8.0 Oreo. Samsung recently launched a beta program that brings Pie to the Note 8, but it is better to wait for the stable version this coming month.
